School’s almost out, the days are getting longer, and the weather’s warming up, which means it’s time to get on the road and explore our country with a good old-fashioned road trip. But is your car, truck, or SUV ready for the vacation? Here’s how to get your Ford ready for summer road trips:
Oil Change and Tire Rotation
Before putting long miles on your Ford, make sure it has fresh oil for optimal engine performance and recent tire rotation for even tire wearing. If you service at L&L Motor, we can also let you know of any other maintenance items that are due, and we’ll do a full inspection to make sure your Ford is operating safely before your trip.
Clean Inside and Out
Car washes and waxes are important for preserving your car’s exterior, especially after a winter filled with snow and road salt. But you should also clean out the inside of your Ford before your trip — and bring along trash bags to keep it clean during your vacation.
Check the Basics
Before heading out, make sure that your tire pressure is correct, your windshield wiper blades aren’t leaving streaks, all your headlights are working, and your AC is operating correctly. This will save you unexpected troubles during your trip.
